Broadway bound layerd card for Stampin' for all.

You can make great cards using up your scraps. I recently sent out customer card kits using the Broadway Bound DSP and had a little spare so used some of the scraps to create this card. 

I followed a card sketch shared on a crafty forum I run with my DT members over on facebook ... you can see the sketch AND the group here > The lovely Gez Carpinter found the sketch to help insire the group in their card making.

Simple layers can give a realy fun and cool look I love how this turned out and minimal colours means its a great one if you dont have a huge collection of inks...I just used black here.

This card would suit anyone .. male, female, adult, child it realy is a versatile set. I do have a video to share with you. I created this very much off the cuff ... meaning I had the sketch in my hand and made my card up as I went... you can see my brain ticking and any mistakes I make and rectify along the way.

So go grab a brew, get comfy and enjoy the video. Products used are listed below should you wish to add these to your collection simply click the photos to be linked to the online store.

Daisy and gingham card set.

Another fresh and simple card creation today this time I made a set of five to inspire you. Five because that is the number of colour choices in both the Gingham Gala DSP and the co-ordinating organdy ribbon bundle.

I do like to continualy use sets I may have bought a while back and do love the Daisy punch. I never tire of it and see it as a staple in my collection which I shall never part with. To me punches are money well spent.

A clean and simple look here with a hint of elegance with the pearls and the fact that my front layer is slightly elevated using foam adhesive strip. Saves me using a billion dimentionals and I feel gives much greater support to my card front.

I do think I have a problem with the organdy ribbons...I cant put them down. I am not sure if its their soft delecte feel or the beautiful spring like colours which just brighten up the dreary winter days. I have spotted Daffodils sprouting in my garden this week so I reckon spring is on the way.

To decorate the center of my daisies I created my own buttons from paper and tied bakers twin trough the holes I am thrilled at how cute these look .... I do show you how these are done on my Youtube video which acompanies this post.

So grab a warm brew, get comfy and enjoy the video. All the products I used are as always listed below.

All that you are clean and simple card.

A quick clean and simple card today perfect for those days you just need a card in a hurry ... but still want it to look beautiful. Nothing looks cleaner and more fresh than a simple watercolour wash. Couple this with soft colour choices kept to a minimumn and your good to go.

I used the new All that you are stamp, a perfect choice as the large detailed, statement piece is all you need to make a great card. No fuss, no dies... just paper stamp and ink.

Paired with the Gingham gala dsp for a spring fresh feel and co ordinating the balmy blue together in the paper and the flower pulls it together nicely. This card just softly shouts SPRING !!!

I love to play with my aqua painters, which I used here,  as it makes me feel artsy and its a fast way to get the colour on your image. A few swishes and your done.

Distressing the edges of the stamp layer with the edge of a pair of scissors add a small amount of dimension and extra interest, finished off with some subtle just there white sequins.

I do hope you enjoyed this projects. I do have a quick fun video tutorial for you to follow on my Youtube. Products used are listed bellow simply click the photos to browse.
